Sometimes, when I take a little breath, I am amazed by how far this little blog of mine has come in the past few years. To think that something I enjoy so much can be a creative outlet for me and a source of income for my family is so incredibly humbling. It’s also funny to think about how many things I shared on my blog before so many of you sweet friends were following along. As such, I wanted to share today a few tips I shared several years ago (when we were still living in our big, colonial fixer upper). I was looking back on that post this week and thinking that I needed to take some of my own advice!

Simple greenery and hints of mercury glass create a lovely French farmhouse style Christmas dining room! A big thank you to Balsam Hill for partnering with me for this project.

No matter the size of the closet (or the number of kids sharing it), these tips will help you create a system that will enable your kids to keep their own spaces organized so you don’t have to keep organizing kids’ closets over and over again.

The perfect accessory for fall, winter, and even modern air conditioning is a cozy throw blanket. They instantly make every room warmer, more comfortable…. and provide color, texture, and beauty along the way.
